Interphotoreceptor retinoid binding protein (IRBP) is a soluble glycolipoprotein located between the neurosensory retina and pigment epithelium, which may serve to transport vitamin A derivatives between these tissues. The specific cell type responsible for IRBP synthesis has not been well established. To address this issue, we have examined the expression of IRBP mRNA in human and cone-dominant ground squirrel retinas by in situ hybridization. Optimal labeling and histological resolution were… CONTINUE READING
